MOSCOW, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian strategic nuclear-powered submarines Vladimir Monomakh and Alexander Nevsky will conduct Bulava missile launches in summer-autumn 2014, says a source in the Russian Navy.

Two strategic Project 955 Borey class nuclear-powered submarines of the Russian Navy will conduct single launches of transcontinental ballistic Bulava missiles in summer-autumn 2014 as directed by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. This was reported by a source in the General Headquarters of the Russian Navy.

Vladimir Monomakh is to undergo state tests in summer-autumn this year, including a sub-launch of a Bulava missile in the White Sea aquatorium. The missile will be fired toward the Kura test site in Russia’s far-eastern Kamchatka territory.
